Hello sir,

Thank you very much.. I am already some of the modules source code to get understanding..though it is time consuming better than nothing!!

I wonder why there is no books on nginx module development.

Thank you very much for guidance..i will definitely start with that article.

Evan Miller's guide is good (although might be a bit outdated).  I 

would recommend you to start with:

(Advanced guide you link to covers more advanced topics and assumes 

you are already familiar with basic things.)

If in doubt, lots of module samples are available in nginx
